    Welcome back to another round of love or loath. We have Frances McDormand and her oscar Winning work in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri. I completely love her win for this movie she was such a bad ass and owned everyone and everything on screen and chewed through the scenery like it was nothing, so I am very happy with her win for this movie. I loved Sally Hawkins heart wrenching performance in The Shape of water. Saroaise Ronan delivered her best performance with Lady Bird and Meryl Streep was mesmerizing in The Post, and Margot Robbie was breathtaking as Tonya Harding, this was such an awesome year for the Best Actress category, but Frances fully deserved it. What do you all think do you love her win or do you think someone else should have won.

    LOVE. I think the more apt question would be to ask love or overrated. But Sally Hawkins deserved

    Like? I thought she was great, but I would not have given her the win. Margot Robbie deserved.

    I liked it. She was very good. Sally Hawkins was much better though. So was Saoirse Ronan. Shoulda been Sally Hawkins’ year.

    McDormand was terrific in a film that was otherwise unsteady. But Hawkins was my pick that year.

    Phenomenal performance in a great but not masterpiece film and one of the best winners in the past decade in this category but I have similar feelings towards her performance here to her performance in Nomadland. She delivers but I wouldn’t give her the win and preferred two other nominees in the category that year. I would have given the Oscar to Margot Robbie for I, Tonya.

    Love. I was no fan of Three Billboards (even though I still prefer it over The Shape of Water), but she totally deserved to win that year. That lineup was one of the strongest in years, but I still think Frances was above her competition.

    Does anyone actually loathe her win here? She’s a genius. Of course Margot also deserved, I Tonya was incredible. Still doesn’t change the fact Francis gave an incredibly deep & rigid performance that left everyone who watched it shaken. She was the rightful winner here

    also the pain this gives me because I adored Margot Robbie in I, Tonya which is one of my favourite performances of the decade, I am a huge supporter of Sally Hawkins but at the same time very few people can not have anything but admiration & joy for the recognition of geniuses like Frances.

    Unpopular, I guess? But no, I don’t love the performance or win. She was fine but I wouldn’t nominate her.

    She was great, but I do prefer Robbie. This lineup was phenomenal though

    The movie is ridiculous and lazy written, but her performance is certanly above the mediocrity of the film. I wouldn’t give her the win, but I’m okay with it.

    It's about the chaotic editing in Moulin Rouge!

    I feel like this win has gotten less popular over the last couple of years.

    I personally loved her in the film but I wouldn’t have objected to Hawkins or Robbie winning either.
